Florida - Fort Lauderdale

Hi, can anyone tell me the best way to get from the Embassy Suites at FL Airport to the BankAtlantic Centre Arena in Sunrise. Flying in from Scotland the same day to pick up a cruise, and want to catch the concert. Thanks.

The Turnpike 91 will have a lot less traffic than 95. Since you are probably taking a taxi to the cruise dock, have you considered taking a taxi to the concert?

Thanks for your response. Was going to take a taxi from Fort L Airport to Embassy Suites FL and then get cab to arena. Wondering about cost though and availability of cabs on way back. Perhaps would even take hire car and return to aiport next morning before joining cruise. What do you think ?

Take the rental car (hire car.) They are extraordinarily cheap in Florida. You might consider bidding on priceline after you check out rates with the major car companies.

Take a rental car. It would be your least expensive option considering the Port, Airport, and your hotel are all very near each other and the Bank Atlantic Center is roughly 14 miles to the west. In addition, Fort Lauderdale would be easier to explore with a car as the main sights, Las Olas, Downtown, and the Beach aren't within walking distance from your hotel.
